Welcome to the Group Walk Pt.1- (#20-21 & Optional #30-31)

It's great to see so many new members join the group! Our group offers walks at two different paces.

1. Faster work out paced walk. We go at a fast pace and don't wait for the group at the top of staircases.

2. Slower paced walk. A walk in the park type walk.

So as a way to welcome new members we will do a slow paced walk.

Meeting Place:

Tomato Pie Pizza
2457 Hyperion Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90027

Look for Baller Hardware on Hyperion. Then turn on Tracy and Tomato Pie will be on your left hand size.

Parking: Plenty of free parking on Tracy and Hyperion-since it's Sunday, the meters are free.

Start Time:

Please arrive at Tomato Pie at 4pm.

We will have introductions, then the walk starts promptly at 4:15pm.


I've named this route Tomato Pie East. This route starts and ends at Tomato Pie Pizza Joint.

This is a variation of Walk #21 in Fleming's book. This walk includes two staircases from Walk #20, and we will do all the staircases from Walk #21, but in a different order than the book.

3.2 miles.

1 hr & 15 mins.

Step Totals

1. Tracy Up 23 Steps.
2. Landa, Part 1: Up 19 steps.
3. Landa, Part 2: Up 97 steps.
4. Landa, Part 3: Up 154 steps.
5. Drury Down 93 Steps.
6. Scotland Up 51 Steps.

437 steps total.
344 steps Up.
93 steps Down.


Understand that this is a slower paced walk! A walk in the park type pace.

We will wait for members at the top of staircases. Bring your camera and take pictures.


If you only want to do Tomato Pie-Hoover Stairswalk, meet the group at Tomato Pie at 5:15pm. We should finish the first walk by that time, but you may have to wait a few minutes for us. But, we won't wait for people. We will continue right from the earlier walk.

If you want a faster paced stairswalk, afterwards I will do the Tomato Pie-Hoover Stairswalk. This walk combines Walks 30-31 in the book. This is basically the weekly Tomato Pie Stairswalk led by the Los Angeles Stairstreet Advocates, with a slight detour for the Hoover stairs and Disney's first house.

Disney Fans- we will go by the first house Walt Disney owned in LA. The house has no markers indicating Disney live there. But, this site tells the story- Walt Disney House.


This will be at a faster, workout type pace.

If you're not able to keep up with the group, you are on your own to get back to the starting point.

3.6 miles.

1 hr 15 min.

After both walks, you're welcomed to join me for great pizza at Tomato Pie. They sell pizza by the slice, some great salads, and the famous garlic knots!


No crashers. Please sign up for this walk. Please just don't show up.

RSVP limits are set, because I don't want a huge group on these walks. So, if you RSVP only for yourself, don't bring a guest.

Please keep your RSVP updated and current. Repeated No Shows may lead to members being removed from the group.

Always bring water and lots of it.

Dogs are welcomed but must be on a leash at all times.

Restrooms are available only at the start of this walk at Tomato Pie.

Any questions or concerns please email me, David.

Hope to see lots of new members!!

    Overall, I enjoyed the walk. I'm still not quite ready for the fast-paced walks.

    I guess I wasn't meant to meet all of you. I was coming from Orange County and the traffic on the 101 freeway was awful as there was a car on fire near Union Station. I got to Tomato Pie at 4:30 p.m. I did get some of their wonderful pizza. Hope to see you soon.
